I really like Firefox, and have been using it for many years. I even used Netscape navigator back in the bad old days! But there are two things that really annoy me:

- I can't seem to be able to place bookmarks into folders on the desktop (like I can with Vivaldi). For example: I visit a lot of news sites, so I'd like to have a folder called "News", and put them all it there instead of having my news site bookmarks all over the desktop. I just find it a cleaner way to organise my desktop.

- I can't seem to customize my search, apart from selecting between the default search engines. I'd like to be able to search "google.co.za" instead of "google.com", but there doesn't seem to be a way of changing that (again, like I can with Vivaldi).

If I could sort these issues out, Firefox would be my main browser, and I'd scrap Vivaldi as I find that it's getting too "heavy". (Of course, maybe these features contribute to that!)

Thank you.

To log into my mortgage lender's site I have to enter my email address. Beside this field is the Facebook container symbol; mousing over it warns me that if I enter my email here, Facebook can track me. Mortgage Lender used to allow me to log in with a user name, but now requires my email address, which apparently gives Facebook access to track me. Tried speaking to the lender about this, but they simply assert there are no Facebook trackers on their site. So, any workaround for this besides just doing all my business with them by phone from now on?

Om Macos 12.7.3 Monterey using FF 115.7.0esr (64-bit). Been using FF since God knows when. All well. But a couple of months ago windows or tabs are crashing. When I'm hitting a link and either holding Cmnd or right click "open in new tab" in order to get the linked page in new tab, the tab/window I'm using shuts down. Poof.

Using v115.7 in debian 12.

I prefer to open pdf files with the default viewer in the operating system, not on a firefox browser tab. I have gone into settings->general->applications and configured selected "Use system default application" for PDF files. If I click on a pdf file it downloads to my Downloads folder, which is the usual and preferred behaviour. If I click the downloaded files icon on firefox's toolbar, I see the file I downloaded, all good. If I open the folder with all downloaded files, and click on the file, it opens in the OS's default viewer, all good. On the other hand, if I click on the downloaded files icon on firefox's toolbar and simply select the downloaded file from the displayed list, it opens on a firefox browser tab. This is driving me bananas. How do I configure firefox to launch the default system application instead?

When I clicked troubleshooting mode FF unexpectedly closed my Private browsing session and all the tabs. How do I reopen them?

I did not expect FF to close on me like that. I thought that as I was in a private browsing session FF would have warned me that it was about to close had it been necessary.

I'm guessing that my open tabs have been lost permanently because you didn't warn me and that all that time I spent is now wasted.

Life is really simple except that other people make it problematic.

Hello. It seems that Google has created a way of "dealing with" Firefox's automatic removal of the page seeking one's acceptance or rejection of cookies. Each time I refresh the page, the accept/reject cookies pop-up briefly flicks on-screen but then disappears and one is back at the consent page:

https://consent.google.com/m?continue=https://maps.google.com/maps&gl=GB&m=0&pc=m&uxe=eomtm&cm=2&hl=en&src=1

So as things are, I cannot access the consent page to either reject or accept the cookies, and therefore I cannot get past the consent page and into googlemaps.

Google may be aware of Firefox's way of "dealing with" the consent page and has found a way of making it impossible for people to proceed to use of the googlemaps website.

This morning I received an email stating: If you are running a version of Firefox equal to or older than Firefox 78 (general release or ESR) and you have a Mozilla account, you must follow these steps to ensure continued operation of your account in Firefox: I have firefox 115.7.0esr (64-bit) running on a mid 2010 macBookPro with High Sierra OS 10.13.6

My question: what does this mean? Is my FF equal or older? And is a Mozilla account the same as a FF account? PLEASE help me, by explaining exactly what I'm supposed to do and HOW and reply in simple comprehensible language, I am NOT a tech/nerd/geek and already following all these numbers has given me a headache! Thanks in advance.
